1. Index finger: Konad Black

What do I look for in a top coat?
1. Being a stampaholic the first thing I want from a top coat is that it DOESN'T smudge my nail stamping.
2. I love shiny nails!
3. I want a fast drying top coat, being a mom isn't easy! :)
My thoughts about Gloss It!:
1. Yay! It doesn't smudge my nail stamping design. I was amazed how well it worked with stamping. Its very difficult to find a good top coat that works with nail stamping. As you see in the pic above Gloss It! didn't smudge my nail stamping design. Konad polishes smudge very easily even with the best top coat. The top coat worked well with Konad polishes too. I used Konad polishes on my index and ring finger. You can see a little smudge on the index finger but it's very minimal to the naked eye. Even with the best top coat little smudges will occur. I am very happy that Gloss It! Works great with nail stamping.
**Remember Krafty Gurl Designs doesn't state or claim her top coat works with nail stamping, this is my opinion, it's what I look for in a top coat. When using a top coat on nail stamping, be generous and apply a thick coat. Only apply over the area once, trying not to pass the brush twice over any area you previously applied the top coat. Try to be quick and apply lightly. If you apply too much pressure to the brush, you will smudge the design.
2. This top coat applies evenly. Not too thin nor too thick, just right for me. It dries to a beautiful shine.
3. Drying time: I was amazed how fast it dried.
4. My favorite part is that is 5 free.
5. I had no shrinkage, I had the mani below for 2 days, look at the pictures.
Here is a mani I did using Gloss It! as my top coat:
